Recently; I upgraded my camera, added a grip, and outgrown my camera bag (Tamrac Velocity 5), which means that I'm looking for a new one. The main problem with this is that I don't really know what I want anymore.

So I did some searching through POTN for what other people like, and what works for them. My work is your fortune, so here is the list that I compiled. Please help and add any that I may have left off. If it doesn't help me find what I want, maybe it'll help someone else!

Note: All links, except cambags.com, go to POTN threads containing reviews of the bag specified, most have pictures.


*Edit* Last update 10/29/07 - Have I missed something, PM me and I'll add it.

I call for a sticky! (and get rid of the toploader review sticky - that shouldn't be a sticky while all the other reviews aren't)

Another vote for sticky... plus some additions from me:

Different ways to use a Lowepro Dryzone Rover

LowePro Slingshot Series Q&A

Waterproof Camera Bags Q&A

Edit: and another vote for un-sticky-ing the toploader review...we've all had our chance to make fun of his teeth, but it's time it got demoted.

I should probably do a review of my Tenba DB-17C. I will do this when I get some time and that is not gonna be for about a month. I will have to borrow a cheapie p&s to do the pics of the stuff in the bag for comparison, the rest will be done with the 10D. It is designed to hold a 17" laptop in the bottom. This one is huge and well, it will fit the Canon EOS 10D w/ grip, Sigma 120-300mmF2.8EX attached and still room for the Canon 24-70mm F2.8L all in the centre pouch with tons of room to spare. The other lens is a Canon 16-35mm F2.8L

Can I ask suggest if this thread is made a sticky, that it's maintained, possibly locked to stop it getting filled with questions, and maybe cleaned from the quiestions that have already been posted.

The existing Toploader 75AW thread wants adding to the first post - it was a Google search that dug up that post that brought me to POTN in the first place.

I obviously couldn't read - the thread I'm thinking of is already in the first post. If I come across any more, I'll post them here.

As others have said - well done on pulling this information together.

I like the Targus line of camera bags available at Comp USA

Roomy and lots of zippered pockets.
